  Molecular and genetic mechanisms of brain structural plasticity and neurodegeneration in the fruit-fly Drosophila.
  Dr A Hidalgo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The brain changes throughout life. brain plasticity enables the brain to adjust in response to experience, whereas during aging natural neurodegeneration takes over.
  Investigating the chemistry of antioxidants and polysaccharides present in date-fruit (Phoenix dactylifera) as a novel/potential therapies for neoplastic and infectious diseases.
  Dr H Morgan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Date-fruit contains vast amount of phenols; approx. 80400µmol/100g, which portray antioxidant abilities.
  Lighting the Way - Adventures in Fruit Spectroscopy
  Dr P Subedi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Join Northern Australia's agricultural innovator, CQU's Institute for Future Farming Systems - a world-leader in delivering practical solutions which are bolstering the productivity, profitability and sustainability of the horticulture sectors.
  BBSRC CTP four-year studentships for October 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

 The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC ) has awarded a Collaborative Training Partnership (CTP) grant to a consortium led by Berry Gardens Growers Ltd and NIAB EMR.
  The role of functional foods in modulating the adaptive response to training (Ref: SF20/SER/HOWATSON)
  Prof G Howatson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is growing body of evidence to suggest that the use of bioactive foods can be beneficial in the management of post-exercise declines in muscle function.
  Discovering molecular genetic mechanisms of central nervous system regeneration
  Dr A Hidalgo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Is it possible to promote regeneration of the central nervous system after injury, damage or disease? During normal development, neutrons and glia interact to coordinate the generations of neutrons and glia, and direct cell migration patterns, axonal navigation, dendritic arborisation and the emergence of neural circuits.
  Role of the microbiome in neurodegenerative disease
  Prof J Ketley, Prof F Giorgini
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human microbiome is essential for human health as it is crucial for the development of immunity, tissue development, host metabolism and protection from various infectious diseases.
  The evolution of the neurogenic gene regulatory networks in Bilateria
  Dr R FEUDA, Dr E Rosato
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The evolution of the nervous system is one of the most important innovations in the evolutionary history of animals. Because neurons are present in deuterostome (e.g.
  The regulation of signalling pathways in cancer initiation by Rho GTPases and the Cytoskeleton
  Dr A Elbediwy, Dr M Stolinski, Mr P Waller, Dr H Ashrafi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

What is the reason why cells can suddenly switch to uncontrolled cellular growth? What causes the normal formation of cellular contacts and organs to stop growing when reaching their normal size to ignore normal signals and multiply uncontrollably?.
  Investigating reduction of UK perishable fresh food produce waste through quality and social gap analysis (Advert Reference: SF19/BL/MOS/SHOKRI1)
  Dr A Shokri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

UK was reported by Waste and Resources action Programme (WRAP) as the largest contributor of perishable fresh produce (fruit and vegetables) waste in Western Europe with 140 kg/head/year with equivalent financial loss of €200-260 per year (Blanke, 2015).
  Metabotyping the response to dietary intervention (Ref: SF20/APP/LODGE)
  Dr J Lodge
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A healthy diet is at the forefront of factors known to reduce risk of degenerative disease. It has been evidenced that certain dietary approaches can influence specific conditions associated with healthy ageing such as endothelial function (blood pressure), cognition, lipid status and glucose control.
  How does amino acid metabolism affect tumour growth?
  Dr L. Cheng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The effect of diet on tumour growth is hotly debated but poorly characterized. Due to the heterogeneous nature of the tumours, dietary studies in patients with varied genetic background often led to inconclusive outcome.
  Mechanistic analysis of neurodevelopmental disorders caused by mutations in the gene RAC1
  Dr T Millard, Dr S Banka
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

RAC1 is a signalling protein that regulates many cellular processes and is essential during embryonic development. We recently discovered a novel genetic disease called RAC1-related neurodevelopmental disorder (RRND) that results from mutations in the RAC1 gene.
  The role and regulation of microtubules during axon growth and degeneration
  Prof A Prokop
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Axons are the enormously long cable-like processes of neurons that wire the nervous system. These delicate structures have to be maintained for a life time.
  Understanding regulation of gene expression during development via an integrated computational analysis of ‘omics data
  Prof S Hubbard, Prof S Griffiths-Jones, Dr M Baron
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Embryonic development requires exquisite control of the expression of large numbers of genes, integrating components from the genome, transcriptome and proteome.
